Best and Worst of NXT Takeover: Chicago
#1 Worst: Botches in the ring
Botches through the night prevented the night from being absolutely stellar, across the duration of this NXT special. Killian Dain from SAnitY took out Roderick Strong right in front of the referee, but because the match wasn’t supposed to end that way, Tom Phillips had to cover for the referee on commentary, saying how his eyes were not on the two men involved.
Eric Young messed up the Wheelbarrow Neckbreaker that he tried to deliver on the floor, and Hideo Itami attempted a disrespectful kick on Bobby Roode who was lying prone behind him but missed him by a country mile. Maybe insignificant points for some, but these were the glaring botches on display tonight.Published 21 May 2017, 10:03 IST
